Aldonza Shawl by @Trizasytrazos


In this case, as the special thing is the wool with which I have knitted it, since for me it is the first time that I have knitted 100% La Mancha wool, I wanted to give it a name closely related to Castilla La Mancha. Thinking and thinking, I remembered “Aldonza Lorenzo”, the real name of “Dulcinea del Toboso” (from “Don Quijote de la Mancha”), surely the latter name sounds more familiar to you.

Pattern includes both chart and written instructions.

12 sts x 18 rows = 10 x 10 cm on 5.5 mm needles, in stockinette stitch after blocking.
Gauge has an influence on the size of your finished shawl and your yardage!

One size: 160x120x100 cm

One skein of Wool dreamers – Manchelopi: (you will use almost the entire skein, between 85 and 95 grams)

5.50mm and 80 cm cable, or the ones you need to achieve gauge.

Tapestry needle for weaving ends.
Stitch markers: It is not essential, but you can place a marker where the lace motif ends. At the end of the shawl, you will knit a motif that is repeated several times, and maybe there you will find markers very useful.

Manchelopi is an unspun yarn that is made 100% with Manchega wool. Its natural light grey color and its twist-free slivers make this “cheese” a rare and high-quality material with which you will be able to create unique and inimitable clothing.

As for the thickness, due to its double sliver, it will depend on our control of the needles. If we want to knit it in two strands to make it easier for us, we would be facing a thickness of 230m / 100g (DK); on the other hand, if you are one of the highly skilled ones and you dare with a single strand, you will have double the meters: 460m / 100g (Fingering).
